Depending on your situation, your account can be placed into a partial or full suspension.
If your service was recently suspended, the impacts to your bill may vary depending on your billing method. For Bill Arrears, you'll see prorated monthly charges, overages, one-time charges, taxes, etc. For Bill Current, you'll receive a credit for the time your service was fully suspended on the first bill after the suspension.
When service is restored, you're billed the prorated monthly charges for the time active within that bill cycle on the bill after being restored, unless already billed.
A military suspension does not extend your contract. There are no monthly charges, taxes, or suspend fees while your account is under a military suspension. See how to suspend your line if you're about to enter active military service.
You may suspend your account for a maximum of 39 months if you're being deployed and are a member of the:
Things to consider if you request a military suspension for a line on your account:
For example: Say you're on an $80/month family plan. If there's one line that's active and one line on a military suspension, then the total amount billed is $80. But, if both lines have a military suspension, then the monthly recurring charge would be $0.
You may voluntarily suspend your account once per year for a maximum period of 90 consecutive days. During a seasonal suspension, the account must remain current. You can also suspend individual lines of an account, while other lines remain active.
Your account is billed $10 per month for each suspended line. If any lines are active, the full monthly charge is billed for each active line.
For example: Say you have an account with three lines on the individual Simple Choice rate plan. You decide to temporarily suspend two of those lines. The two suspended lines are billed $10 per month, while the third non-suspended line is billed to the account for the monthly charges, including any data and other features.
Anytime your account is past due, your service may be partially suspended. If the balance on your account remains unpaid, a full suspension may occur. A $20 account restoration fee will be charged per line to restore service.
